    You ought to check out BBC America some time -- it's quite good.
    I should watch BBC more often I guess. The last time I did, ( I forget why) but I got the impression they were leaning left.

    I also think the BBC leans more to the left. I feel they are very biased when it comes to issues regarding the UN and global warming. I have read some BBC articles that seem to be very fair though.

    The question should have been who is most likely to give you the whole stories.

    Unfortunately it is clear that a lot of people are unable tell the difference between a talks show and a News show.

    Fox Talk shows are filled with Conservatives other than Juan Williams the the wacko Alan Combs, but the News seems to include all stories CNN is filled with Liberals and pretty much doesn't report on Obama's lies or mistakes at all.

    In my book those are lies of omission and that makes them almost as bad as MSNBC which is about as much as a news channel as comedy central.

    The BBC hands down does not try to inject spin the way American news does. Of course, this is from the perspective of someone watching it for news about America. I think that removal is a huge boon. I might not want to go to the BBC for information about Britain. Outsides who have no stake in the news they are reporting have less incentive to lie. Both NBC and Fox like to put their opinion people on as their main stars and, honestly, their non-opinion people are just as guilty.

    This problem really isn't as hard to figure out as people think. Consider the recent trial of the 9/11 terrorist. I first read it as an article stating "terrorist acquitted, massive shame for Obama." There are two lies in that headline. The truth is that the terrorist was convicted of one charge, out of two hundred. The sentence for that conviction was twenty years to life. An honest headline would have said "terrorist sentenced to 20-life." It would discuss the fact that there were many charges against the defendant, reasons why some of them failed, what he was actually convicted of, and the sentence. There would be no mention of who supported civilian trials vs military trials or whether this is a good thing. The news in this is just the facts. The minute you start trying to tie it into some larger political scheme, you have started to inject your opinion. An honest news source would stick to the facts.

    They are kind of like Mexicans. While airplanes mainly focus on at least going somewhere, the helicopters hover around doing the jobs the airplanes -with their constant need for forward mobility- are too good for.

    They're all biased.

    In this thread right now is a bunch of biased people arguing over how biased each biased station is.

    To not be biased is impossible.

    Unfortunately, it's not too far of a jump from thinking Stewart and Colbert are "news" to thinking the Onion is actual news.
